Lily Hates Thunderstorms

This is Lily. Lily is a dog. Most of the time Lily is a happy dog, but not during thunderstorms. When it thunders Lily barks and digs at the kitchen door. She has pulled the molding off and even cut her paw. We're not sure whether she is afraid of the noise of the thunder or the flash of lightning. We are trying to find ways to make the storms less traumatic for her.
We have tried closing the drapes, playing the radio (loudly), offering treats, getting the diffusers that supposedly give off calming vapors and sleeping on the couch with her at night with a blanket over her head. Anyone have any other suggestions????
